7 Eye Creams for Fighting Bags, Wrinkles and Dark Circles!

Press Sample

Who gets enough sleep these days? No one I know, so eye creams have become an essential component to your anti-aging arsenal. As we get older, the skin around the eyes gets thinner and when you smile or squint, the skin folds, leading to crow’s feet and wrinkles. Unless you plan on never smiling again (which I have threatened to do), you’ll need to add a good eye cream to your skincare routine ASAP. Whether your eye issue is bags, wrinkles or dark circles, I’ve rounded up a few of my tried and tested favorites.

Firming

DermE Firming DMAE Eye Lift $25. This multi-action eye cream visibly lifts, firms and tightens the delicate eye area while smoothing crow’s feet. My two eye issues are undereye bags and crow’s feet so this eye cream is perfect for me! DMAE is known to be nature’s agent and helps to support collagen for a lifted look. InstaLift® Goji Berry glycopeptides add further firming, lifting and tightening antioxidant power. Advanced peptides Argireline® and Matrixyl® synthe’6® work together to soften facial muscles and synthesize new key components helping smooth wrinkles and discourage new lines from forming. This is one the BEST eye creams I have ever used! It firms my bags, hydrates my dry undereye area, softens my crow’s feet and performs well under concealer. It is all I could ever ask for in an eye cream! Read the full review here.

Lines and Wrinkles

RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Sensitive Eye Cream $19.99 has a lightweight, clinically proven formula that corrects the signs of aging in 4 to 12 weeks. It is designed for women whose skin is sensitive to retinol, like me, or who have never tried retinol. It’s not greasy, oil-free ophthalmologist tested, and noncomedogenic. I love how quickly it absorbs and that it is readily available at the drugstore. 96% of women with previous sensitivity to Retinoids experienced no redness or bothersome irritation in a clinical study. Results after clinical testing: visible improvement in: fine lines, crow’s feet wrinkles and under eye wrinkles. If you are sensitive to retinol like I am but want to improve the look of lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet then RoC RETINOL CORREXION Sensitive Eye Cream is for you.

Robin McGraw Revelation Dot Your Eyes Cream $40, is highly moisturizing, absorbs well and does not pill up or interfere with concealer. The unique 5 peptide complex promises to reduce the appearance of puffy eyes, dark circles and fine lines while assisting in natural collagen production to tighten puffy and sagging skin. I do love the massive dose of hydration this cream delivers to my under eye area. The eye cream comes in a pump that delivers the perfect amount for both eyes with no mess. Read my full review here.

Dark Circles

Elemis Eye Recovery Cream $49. This skin-synchronizing treatment combines the hydration of a moisturizer with the protection of an oil and is specifically formulated for the delicate eye area. Peptide⁴ helps revive the appearance of tired and overworked eyes to improve the appearance of under eye dark circles and reduce puffiness under eyes. This targets the appearance of dark shadows, for brighter eyes that look well-rested with the power of Hawkweed and Daisy Extracts. There’s also a whole host of optical blurring powders that’ll help to reduce dark circles. This eye cream provides deep hydration for the dry under eye area and feels so smooth and soothing!

MyChelle Magnolia Fresh Eyes $29.50 is a soothing eye gel with a blend of Prodizia™, Caffeine, Kombuchka, and Daisy Flower Extract that help decrease the appearance of puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines. Magnolia Flower Oil supports nourishment and hydration, and Organic Green Tea Extract provides powerful anti-pollution and antioxidant benefits. 0.5 fl oz. Put this in the fridge for a cooling effect to wake up your eyes in the morning!

Undereye Bags

Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift $65, is actually a leave-on eye masque that promises to brighten, lift, de-puff and energize. The high-performance formula minimizes the appearance of puffiness and dark circles, increases skin luminosity, lifts the eye area and helps restore skin barrier integrity. I absolutely love the texture of this creamy gel. It glides on and has a velvety feel when it dries down yet doesn’t pill or crack. It provides hydration all day and performs superbly under concealer and foundation. The metal applicator depuffs beautifully. Unlike most eye creams, you can actually use this under the brow bone to firm that area too! Read my full review here.

dr. brandt needles no more No More Baggage $42. I got this in one of my BoxyCharm boxes and within days it became a staple in my makeup bag. this advanced formula provides a tightening effect and smooths the under-eye contour to visibly reduce the appearance of under-eye bags and dark circles for an immediately brighter, well-rested look. This advanced formula provides a tightening effect and smooths the under-eye contour to visibly reduce the appearance of under-eye bags and dark circles for an immediately brighter, well-rested look. And I mean, immediately! It’s a flesh color and thicker than other creams, but it de-puffs like no other, plus it plays well with foundation and concealer. It also works over time to renew the under-eye area for a consistently smooth appearance. I will definitely repurchase!
